Tessellation Art

Artwork Inspired by Maths


Tessellation Art is the home of mathematically inspired digital artwork. My designs can be bought on art canvases and bags. Having lived in Prague since 2013, I draw on the local architecture as inspiration for my new projects. I have held 6 art exhibitions in Prague and am now venturing into the world of Design Markets. I am currently working on an artwork range inspird by Prague's statues which I hope to launch at Mint! :)

Chris Watson | Tessellation ArtBiography

I am a mathematical artist with a background in design and technology. Formerly a product designer, I now create artwork inspired by tessellations.

I studied Industrial Design and Technology at Loughborough University and went on to work as a product designer for 10 years. This involved resolving functional and aesthetic problems with two and three dimensional geometry.

It wasn’t until 2012 that I discovered the mathematical art of M. C. Escher and his work in tessellation. Immediately, I became fascinated by the imagery and its underlying geometric principles. I studied the rules and started creating tessellations of my own.

In 2013, I licensed my first patterns to a London fabric house and held my first exhibition. I went on to teach tessellation workshops at a local school and following a second exhibition in 2015 I set up Tessellation Art.

Currently I work part time as an English teacher in Prague and devote the rest of my time to new Tessellation Art projects. I record my latest developments here, including artwork, animation, articles, exhibitions and my step-by-step design process. You can also see the end results of my work at the online shop.


***Please note that my prices at Mint would be approximately half of the website prices :)***
